CUMMING, Ga. – North Georgia Brick, the leading masonry solution provider in the
Metropolitan Atlanta area, announced today that it has successfully completed the
acquisition of General Shale’s (formerly Meridian Brick) Atlanta Masonry Distribution
Business. With this acquisition, North Georgia Brick establishes itself as the largest
independent brick distributor in the United States.

The addition of the General Shale distribution business allows North Georgia Brick to
expand its already strong presence in the Atlanta market. North Georgia Brick is
considered to be at the forefront of innovative systems proven to support the nation’s
leading home builders and commercial contractors.

“General Shale has had a strong relationship with our company for decades as a brick
manufacturer. When General Shale acquired Meridian Brick, they became a market
competitor in brick distribution. This purchase re-establishes the
manufacturer/distributor relationship that has proven to be successful for both parties,”
says John Alvord, CEO of North Georgia Brick. “Our company has long been viewed as an
industry leader in technology and distribution systems. We are excited to implement
those solutions for the Meridian customers. This acquisition comes on the eve of
celebrating our company’s 40 th Anniversary.”
